Specialties

Dr. Louis A Vandermolen Jr has the following 3 specialties

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • Hematology & Oncology
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Terrible personality

Dr. Vandermolen came highly recommended to me by a business associate so when I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer he was the only doctor I considered for my oncologist. The first few visits he was informative and took time to answer my questions. Over the course of 4 years post treatment follow up appointments, he has been chronically late and disinterested. I would not recommend him to anyone. Maybe he is so busy he doesn't need the business.

Run from him to Dr. Barth

I had a mastectomy and chemo in my home state. My oncolologist who was excellent and caring cautioned me to look for small bumps along the incision line as a recurrence. Four years into being his patient I noticed the bumps. I saw both Vandermolen and his partner separately. Both told me it didn't look like cancer and sent me to a dermatologist. The dermatologist did a biopsy. Sure enough the breast cancer returned. REALLY? TWO ONCOLOGISTS WHO ARE UNABLE TO IDENTIFY A RECURRENCE. Need I say more? In the changing room for radiation treatments I met many of his patients who didn't care for him or his cavalier and uninterested attitude. I met many patients who loved Dr. Barth . So i happily switched to him.

Doctor vandermolen

All he cares about is money and giving you chemo and radiation. Once done with that, you won't hear from him. His office is grand and he is making money off of your disease. The most time he spends with a patient is the first visit explaining that you need chemo and radiation. There are no alternatives and he does not answer questions truthfully..like telling you the side effects of these treatments and how this treatment will ruin your immune system and eventually blank you.

BEST of the BEST!!

Dr. Vandermolen is the best of the best! He helped me overcome stage 3 breast cancer. He is known as the BEST oncologist at Hoag Hospital. He also treated two of my friends, who are doing well now. I have the utmost faith in him. He may be very busy (lots of patients!!), but he keeps on top of everything and treats each case like it's his only case. There are long waits in the waiting room, but they're worth it. His staff is HUGE and each treats his/her job seriously and with pride. Patients are given blood tests in the office before appointments and Dr. V has the results by the time patients are taken to their exam rooms. His office has very sophisticated equipment. It's no wonder that USC Keck Medicine just chose to partner with Dr. V.
